No party ratings this week: ERR switches to new pollster for 2015 ({{commentsTotal}})

Mid-month usually brings a fresh crop of party ratings, but due to a change in service provider and cycle, the next batch will come in only in February.

Estonian Public Broadcasting (ERR) announced that it was switching from TNS Emor, which did not bid for the 2015 contract, to Turu-uuringute AS.

The latter will conduct 11 monthly polls in 2015, taking a month off in July. There will still be two sets of figures released before March 1 elections: the January data will be published on February 9, and the February data on February 26.

The Emor contract dates back to 2012. No reason was provided for why the company did not vie for the contract for this year.
